It is all about achieving a smile that you are happy to show!

In the present-day world where appearance holds a lot of importance both socially and psychologically, orthodontics as a speciality plays a major role.
Orthodontics treatments deal with the correction of irregular teeth and associated structures. Depending on the ailment, various treatment options are suggested.
Different types of dental braces are used to correct an irregular set of teeth. Braces for teeth are mainly of two types – fixed and removable. The type of braces to be worn will be decided taking into consideration the degree of irregularity of the teeth.

A variety of tooth braces (conventional to highly cosmetic types) are available. Cosmetic braces (tooth colored, mini diamond, colored, golden etc.) are now highly popular.
